Ben Cockcroft & Simon Ablett in 2008


Where did it all start?

AC Landscapes and Treeworks UK Ltd. are one of the largest, independent, Vegetation Management / Tree Surgery / Landscaping companies in the UK. Originally established in 2007, AC Landscape and treeworks has grown and developed significantly, starting off with just both, Ben Cockcroft and Simon Ablett working from a garden shed in South Devon. Over the years they have managed to transform this tiny company into a multi million pound company employing over 60 workers covering the south of England and the midlands.

This expansion is an extremely long way away from the garden shed that we started off at and it wasn’t long until we grew out of the garden shed in 2008 and moved onto a farm. Although it became apparent that the farm was insufficient for the needs of the company, which we soon grew out of, and in 2010 an opportunity arose on a large yard, unit and office block that really suited the company needs. This shortly followed by offices in the midlands to cover the growth of the company.

We at AC Landscape and Treeworks believe our progress and continued success is down to having the right team of people working for us, who are all driven and motivated to the shared company goals and have all helped us achieve certain accreditations. This along with our high standards of workmanship and safety, has no doubt helped in the success and growth of the business which has enabled us to achieve the levels of growth today.
